Raiders vs. Dolphins Total Pick

NFL Total Predictions: Oakland Raiders vs. Miami Dolphins 11/3/17

Will the Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins put on an offensive showcase when the two meet in Sunday Night Football on Sunday at 8:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Oakland is favored on the road, as the Raiders are getting odds of -3 points against the Dolphins. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 44 points. Miami has won five straight meetings with the Raiders and the two have hit the over in six of their last seven encounters. The public betting in this one has Oakland getting 73 percent of the wagers on the road. Sunday’s game takes place from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida. The contest will air live on NBC.

Oakland is coming off a 34-14 loss at Buffalo last week for their fifth loss in six games. The Raiders are now 3-5 on the year and 4-4 with the over/under. Oakland is 3-1 with the under on the road. The Raiders haven’t been the offensive power many expected this year, averaging just 21.1 points and 327.9 yards per game. Derek Carr has thrown for 1,654 yards and 12 touchdowns this year and has six interceptions. Michael Crabtree is the leading receiver with 33 catches for 411 yards and six touchdowns. Marshawn Lynch is the leading rusher with 266 yards, but he was suspended for the last game due to pushing an official. Defensively, Oakland is giving up 23.8 points and 365.8 yards per game. Khalil Mack is leading that unit with 42 tackles and 4.5 sacks.

Miami is coming off a 40-0 loss to the Ravens a week ago Thursday in an embarrassing effort. The Dolphins fell to 4-3 on the season with the loss and 5-2 with the under. However, Miami has hit the over in its last two games. The Dolphins have one of the least productive offenses in the NFL. Miami averages just 13.1 points and 270.6 yards per game. The team sent leading rusher Jay Ajayi to the Eagles this week. Ajayi accounted for 465 of the team’s 535 rushing yards. Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams are expected to take over in the backfield. Quarterback Jay Cutler has missed recent action with a rib injury, but will be back on Sunday. He has thrown for 995 yards and seven touchdowns to go with five interceptions. Cutler gets a big target back this week as well with DeVante Parker returning from an ankle injury. Defensively, Miami is allowing 21.7 points and 319.3 yards per game. Cameron Wake is leading the defense with six sacks.

Bet on Raiders vs. Dolphins

Miami is all kinds of puzzling. The Dolphins have a winning record yet traded away their only consistent offensive player in Ajayi. I am not sure what the offense will be able to do this week. Oakland isn’t a great defense, but the Dolphins don’t have a run game to expect much out of and Cutler has shown he can’t take over games. The Miami defense is respectable enough where it should pose a challenge to the Oakland offense. I think this game ends up low scoring given Miami’s woes.
